Oppo today took the wraps off the Oppo F1 which promises awesome Fs – Fashionable and front-camera. With an 8-megapixel front facing camera plus an enhanced camera software, OPPO aims big with the F1.
The F1 features a full metallic body and comes in two color choices – Golden and Rose gold. The rear houses the 13-megapixel f/2.2 rear camera with single-LED flash, 1080p recording and PDAF support. It also comes with shooting modes like HDR, Ultra HD, double exposure, shooting exposure and GIF mode among others. There is the Oppo branding and the speaker grille at the bottom. I wish they had included a neat look perforated speaker grille that is in vogue now.
It features a 5-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) display 2.5D curved glass and protected by Gorilla Glass 4. The display is pretty neat offering a good contrast ratio. There are three capacitive buttons but are not back lit. The top houses the 8MP selfie camera, ear piece grille and the sensors.
The smartphone also features a 2,5000mAh battery, and connectivity options like dual-SIM card slots, VoLTE support, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth. On the software front, it runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop wrapped under Color OS 2.1. It is one of the few devices available in market now offering VoLTE.
And what is special about the Selfie camera? It has a 8-megapixel f/2.0 selfie camera with 1/4 inch sensor and modes like Beautify 3.0, 8 live color filters. When clicking selfies in low light conditions, the smartphone’s display can be lit up to act as a flash. Other features include palm shutter to start a selfie countdown or voice shout for taking a selfie.
The Oppo F1 is priced at Rs 15,990, and it will go on sale from February 4 onwards. The Oppo F1 Plus, on the other hand, is priced at Rs 26,990 and will go on sale sometime in the month of April.
